A member of staff or freelancer leads this activity.
Mr. Sellit, a travelling salesman, has been found dead in our Victorian Streets, covered in clues. Can your pupils get to grips with Victorian life and the exciting new developments in science and policing to help us to solve the clues and crack the case? This workshop can be differentiated for groups studying Victorians, detective fiction, crime and punishment or early forensic science.
This workshop is also fantastic stimulus for literacy activities and thinking skills. All of the resources used in this workshop are available free of charge for use in follow up work back in school.
